When we hear the word Besharam, it's a negative connotation that pops into her heads because the word literally means 'shameless'. However, the cast and crew of the recently released Besharam have portrayed this word in a positive light in their film.
Because of this title, we may expect to see lead actor Ranbir Kapoor as the anti hero but the makers surprise us. Ranbir plays the role of Babli, a protagonist with a happy-go-lucky attitude. The makers feel that this will make audiences connect with the positive aspects of the term. "It's not about doing vulgar things or getting nude. It's about following your instincts and doing what you feel like doing, not what you are forced to do," explained Ranbir.
"The film's message hits bullseye. My character doesn't fear criticism. He couldn't care less for appreciation. He does what has to be done. Yeh character sochkar karta nahin, aur karke sochta nahin," added Ranbir.
Although the movie has not received very good reviews from the critics, Ranbir feels that the audiences can connect to his character in Besharam. "All I can say is that a lot of people would relate to, or perhaps, find this character full of life and fun. He has a few endearing qualities, which might make him more acceptable," Ranbir said.
The reason why director Abhinav Kashyap cast Ranbir for this role is because of the actor's attitude and approach to work. Kashyap said he liked the way Ranbir conducts himself in public, the way he's pursuing his ambitions, etc.
